10 Best Horror Comedy TV Shows You Need To See

These TV shows are funny, but are they funny ha-ha, or funny ho-ho-horrifying?

There's never been a better time to be a fan of horror on the small screen. From American Horror Story to The Haunting of Hill House and Lovecraft Country, horror television is going from strength to strength. Whether slasher stories are your jam, or you're more into haunted houses and psychopaths, there's something for everyone.

Of course, one of horror cinema's most defining attributes is its flexibility - it can straddle genres as it pleases, taking in period pieces, westerns and sci-fi. One of the more popular subgenres of horror is the comedy horror film - the likes of Shawn of the Dead, Evil Dead II, Zombieland and Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Thankfully, TV horror has got you covered there too. And we don't just mean The Munsters.

Here we take a look at ten of the best comedy horror television shows that have popped up over the years, straddling genres, country and budget. What they do have in common (aside from the occasional crossover) is that they'll make you laugh and scream in equal measure. Viewer beware: you're in for a scare.
